The Iowa City school board election has generated interest, conversations and a long list of candidates. We will be voting for Tuyet Dorau, Chris Lynch and Sara Barron.
Sometimes it is easy to focus on the school our own children attend or the school that is the center of our neighborhood gatherings. It might be easy to forget that the Iowa City Community School District is the fifth largest school district in Iowa. It encompasses five communities and the unincorporated areas between them. There are 25 schools, plus 17 preschool sites. The community volunteer leaders who sit on the school board to develop policies are charged with the responsibility of the entirety of this vast enterprise.
We believe that Dorau, Lynch and Barron are the best placed to bring the widest possible points of view to the table. We believe that they will come to that table with a thoughtful, deliberative approach that puts a premium on transparency and accountability.
